the constitution resolve the struggle between freedom of religion and the right of government to regulate society, even when such regulations may interfere with religious doctrines because those are two points are important here. there was a time in this country before 1965 when it was ok for a state to outlaw the use of contraception by married couples. several states had them for ye they were lingering on the books for years and finally, the supreme court in a case called griswold vs. connecticut said it was unconstitutional to prohibit married people from using contraception in the privacy of their own bedroom. does the constitution has a provision that says the government may not -- may prohibit the married couples from using contraception in the bedroom? it does not. it does have to process and the court found there was a right of privacy. for my libertarian friends in the crowd, it means something you happen saying for years -- the government to get out of our lives to the extent possible. we -- we don't cover and having anything to do with are buried sexuality. then, the government cannot
of a political campaign -- or religion a part of that campaign. as a matter of fact, i think religion became a part of this campaign when mr. mondale's running mate said i wasn't a good christian. so, it does play a part in my life. i have no hesitancy in saying so. and, as i say, i don't believe that i could carry on unless i had a belief in a higher authority and a belief that prayers are answered. >> given those beliefs, mr. president, why don't you attend services regularly, either by going to church or by inviting a minister to the white house, as president nixon used to do, or someone to camp david, as president carter used to do? >> the answer to your question is very simple about why i don't go to church. i have gone to church regularly all my life, and i started to here in washington. and now, in the position i hold and in the world in which we live, where embassies do get blown up in beirut -- we're supposed to talk about that on the debate the 21st, i understand -- but i pose a threat to several hundred people if i go to church. i know the threats that are made against me. we all
to jump in because the reality beano, the parties tend to throw religion when is an upwardly seemed to move certain voters. my frustration is when you have an honest conversation with the hispanic community about religion, you can see them going down the line between the republican and democratic parties. the examples are i am a democrat and a latino because i believe in taking care of my fellow man and woman. the democratic party looks at this issues -- how do we support those families who need? you have this catholic christian latinos who say it makes sense, i need to be a democrat, because we do that kind of social outreach. on the republican side, is a black and white issue about abortion. the reality for latinos is that your walking down the middle of the road with them when it comes to religion, because of that talk of war. my mother in law knows what i do in terms of the democratic message and being out there supporting the president, but she is a strong woman of faith and she cannot be dissuade or moved when it comes to the issue of around abortion. she has told me i will no

studied religion. i am not into apocalypse. i do not know what will happen. i think just like four years ago where people got scared enough to do something, you can argue about whether we did the right thing, to save the system from collapse, we will save the system from collapse the next time, as well. the only way to fix the thing and not have these recurring problems is to do the things we are talking about. >> the catastrophe is certainly possible. my own view is that it is unlikely. it is possible, but i think the probability is pretty low. the greater probability is that unemployment remains at a fairly high level kind of like it is today, that economic growth remains at a slow rate like it is today, that living standards do not rise. it is not a nice scenario. frankly, i think it looks -- it could be improved on by some bold, big-picture action. >> i want to find out where you two are from and how you got to where you are. geoff colvin, where did you start in life? >> i was born in south dakota. a wonderful place. i still say i was incredibly lucky to have grown up where and when
of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. i know that there are some who ask, why don't we just banned such a video? the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free-speech. from the united states, countless publications provoke offense. like me, the majority of americans are christians and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. as president of our country, and commander in chief of our military, i accept that people are going to calm the awful things every day. [laughter] and i will always defend their right to do so. [applause] americans have fought and died around the globe to protect people who express all views, even views we profoundly disagree with. we do not do so because we support hateful speech, but because our founders understood that without such protections, the capacity of each individual to express their own views and their own fate ma

"washington journal" continues. host: we are back with our "america by the numbers" segment. the overall unemployment rate has dropped percentage -- 7.8%. if you look to those sectors, manufacturing is what we're focusing on -- is not doing as robustly as other sectors. manufacturing employment edged down 16,000 jobs on net. the jobs in computer and electronic parts and printing and related activities. we will listen to the candidates and come back oand talk about their proposals for the manufacturing sector. let's start with president obama.

. there's different people, there's different races. there's different religions, and they don't want to accept that. they don't want to change their mindset. so, in the end, they campaign about the media coverage being biased, but when they look at it, the media coverage is not reflecting -- i mean, it's small, because their views are small. i think the media adequately reflects what the larger part of society feels. host: when you hear that somebody is a fox news watcher, do you immediately assume or think of them as potentially racist? caller: i do. because fox news, that's all -- i wish they knew people. i wish they knew other views. you know, the way they bash president obama, i mean, if he were white, you know, it would be different. i think they would look at it differently. i just don't think that -- i just think they're narrow-minded. they probably don't think they're racist, you know, but it's just how they put things out there, how they portray different groups and different people. you know, for instance, the muslims, they're just bad people. i'm a muslim, you know? why wo
